That's fair, but you'd have to admit that Curt Schilling is not unique in being a pro-athlete who milks any and all media attention he has a chance to get. He went through the whole ankle ordeal (which after you peel away all the media overkill WAS a pretty remarkable thing) and suddenly had people like Barbara Walters interviewing him as one of America's Most Amazing People, or some other silly Network ratings stunt title, and yes... he played along.
I am totally not interested in getting anyone mad, nor do I want to start a debate over which team has more media whores on its roster, but I'll simply ask, in realtion to the author's take on Schilling, aren't some of A-Rod's comments, about having finished his morning workouts before any other MLB players have even gotten out of bed... just as self-glorifying as Curt's statements/actions?
I feel like that's a fair question to ask.
I have said since it happened that what Curt was able to accomplish was remarkable. I also wanted to leave it at that. I find it humorous that Schilling was a warrior for what he did and we are still talking about it while T.O. was selfish and no one mentions it anymore.
I don't want to hear about A-Rod's workouts nor do I want to hear comments from Arroyo or Trot Nixon, the latter of which played as much for the Sox last season as Doug Mientkiewicz.
I guess that they all need things to get them through the day but I am just sick of hearing it. I yearn for the day when it can just be about baseball again.
